a slight problem

How much were they going to do on Halloween night?

It felt never ending to Caitlin. First it was off to the Haunted House which was thick with college students as well as teens. And it was cold. She kept huddled with the guys as if they were waiting for some fantastic concert. Then it was twenty bucks to get in. And the whole thing might have lasted 20 minutes.

Maybe she didn't like getting scared. It didn't help that she practically tripped over something in the dark, but Gavin caught her and waited for her. Before she knew it, he was holding her close as if he wouldn't let anything happen to her.

She found herself smiling. Although, she wasn't quite sure why.

"Did you even see my brother in there?" He asked afterwards when they got hot chocolate.

Caitlin found herself laughing. She'd heard his words, hadn't she? For a moment she could only watch his mouth move. What was happening to her? Was she feeling faint?

She wasn't sure she could even explain it. Not exactly a panic attack. She wanted to say something, but her mouth would just not move. Somehow he got her to the car and inside. He started up the car while she was in the backseat.

"What just happen?' She still felt so dizzy, but at least she knew she was in the car and Gavin was in the front seat.

"I dunno. You tell me?" Gavin looked at her. "Are you OK?"

She nodded. Maybe she needed to go to sleep. She was certain she could sleep tonight.

"You should probably get checked out." Gavin informed her.

"Why?" She winced.

"You, kind of spaced out." He shrugged.

Everything was quiet then.

"Where are those boys? When I need them." Gavin drew a breath.

Finally, two giddy guys who just couldn't get enough of each other, arrived at the car.

"Onward to Candy Town!" Alex opened the driver's door for Gavin to get in the backseat with Caitlin.

"I don't think so." Gavin told him. "You better drop us off at the emergency room."

"But why?" Caitlin looked at Gavin as if he was the one with a problem.

"Cait, might have had a seizure." Gavin informed them.

"No, I didn't." Caitlin insisted as if this was some sort of miserable trick of his.

"Well, we don't know for sure." Gavin told her it was better safe than sorry.
